Hi Greg,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you interested in starting your own lawn care business?

Did you ever run a business before?

I got interested in this business because my wife and I just had a new baby. We were getting by but I wanted something more than just getting by. I enjoy doing this work as I work really hard on my own lawn and figured that I could start doing it on the side for money. This is my first adventure at my own business.

Greg,

I think you are doing a great job by networking with others at your office. That is something which is really important. Have you gotten a lot of business cards made and handed out?

Are you using craigslist.com to promote your services? Remember it's free.

Have you thought of getting involved with your community some how to reach out to more potential customers? Joining different groups etc. If so, what kinds of things are you planning on doing?
